The culture of dedicated and collaborative problem-solving in Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota, draws national attention to the region as a source of innovative policy solutions, but data show that inequities persist in the region. Urban Institute researchers, policy experts, and technical assistance providers are working with groups in the Twin Cities area to help generate effective solutions and advance more equitable outcomes. Lessons from this growing body of work can help state and local officials, nonprofits, and other institutions channel their commitment and energy to make more equitable and inclusive places.
